Qassem Soleimani was killed in an air strike by the #US in #Baghdad. Equivalent to Jiang Zemin in #China, Soleimani was a dominant figure in the military, politics and oil industry of #Iran. Most of his family reside in #HongKong, #Shanghai and #Beijing.
#China’s Bank of Kunlun was established by Soleimani family in collaboration with the #CCP. The actual #Chinese main shareholders are Jiang Zemin, Wang Qishan, Meng Jianzhu (and Zhou Yongkang before jailed). Its asset has increased from $17 billion to $28 billion.
#Bank of Kunlun is a tool of #Iran’s Soleimani, Khamenei and the #CCP kleptocrats to launder money and evade the #US sanctions @robert_spalding @MischaEDM @WarrenPlatts @geoff_p_wade @DanRDimicco @Jkylebass @BenKTallmadge @IndoPac_Info @BoycottHegemony

@robert_spalding @MischaEDM @WarrenPlatts @geoff_p_wade @DanRDimicco @Jkylebass @BenKTallmadge @IndoPac_Info @BoycottHegemony Soleimani’s killing follows the #NewYearEve attack by #Iran-backed militias on the #US Embassy in #Baghdad. The two-day embassy attack, which ended Wed, prompted #Trump to order about 750 U.S. soldiers deployed to the #MiddleEast. @JesseMatchey @abresler

A reminder: The #US’s strike on 5 facilities on 29 Dec crippled #Iranian military, esp missile, power.

Could the #CCP be a target? Yes, given it is an Iran’s ally.

The #US president has clear authority to eliminate a combatant who takes the lives of #American citizens.

While the #UnitedStates is not aware of the expected response from Iranians, the country is ’definitely ready for it’.

A: Because behind ALL evil regimes is the CCP. Think of #Russia, #Iran, #NorthKorea, #Venezuela, #Cuba, #Syria etc.. Never mind Al-Qaeda, #ISIS, #Hezbollah, #triad etc.. Sorting out the CCP, these regimes would subsequently collapse.

It came only 5 months after the 2 leaders met and agreed. Based on this deal, the #US gave Iran $150 bn on the top of $1.8 bn in cash. Who is the fool? Who is worse, Iran or the #CCP?

To whom has Iran sold oil? China. How have the transactions done? Through #Chinese banks like Kunlun and COs like #Alibaba. #Trump got all the answers right and is not tricked by the #CCP. No war with Iran👍🏻.

Sounds like the EU leaders are still half-sleepy about current int’l politics, which is generally shaped and structured by the conflict between the #Communist #China and the #US.

By now #KimJongUn must have probed the bottom line of the #US‘s likely response to his missile tests and other reckless deeds. Would his CCP big brother lend some help?

All paid in Chinese Yuan, it thus bypasses the petrodollar system.

Most #American soldiers stationed at the Balad base had already left amid soaring tensions between Washington and #Tehran. Iraq's military said four local soldiers were wounded in the attack.

All were #Canadian #Iranians. 2 had been the CFOs respectively of Islam Charity and Sedat. Both orgs are actually owned by #Khamenei family.

Esmail Qa'ani, #Solemani’s successor, executed the killing. These CFOs’ families in Iran have been killed too.

Some even had connections with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (#IRGC). This explains why the missiles fired by the IRGC at the #US air bases in #Iraq caused no casualty; why the protestors in #Tehran could

Now the upper level of the Khamenei regime is revolting. Don‘t be surprised if #Iran have a new regime soon.

Most of his family members reside outside #Iran, in #Switzerland, #London, #NewYork, #HongKong, #Shanghai etc.. They use #UBS, #China’s Bank of Kunlun etc for money laundering.
